Ray Rice looked a lot lighter, quicker than last year when he was 225 pounds, had hip, quadriceps injuries. Moved well, down to about 205 lbs.
At just 26 years old, it was surprising to see Rice's production fall off the way it did, but he was dealing with hip and quad injuries throughout the season. He was also coming off of a Super Bowl run the previous year, which likely wore him down. GM Ozzie Newsome said he expects Rice to return to Pro Bowl form, but HC John Harbaugh said after the season that the team could take more of a committee approach at running back, which would limit Rice's upside. He also may be suspended for his Atlantic City altercation with his fiance (now his wife).
